I got the 2009 Grizzly catalog this year and was suprised to see that several prices on power tool were up 100 dollars in some cases. I delayed the purchase of a new jointer becasue I thought that prices would go down in 09. With the the way the economy is and gas prices down I least thought shipping may go down 20 dollars. O'well I guess i should of bought that 8" jointer G0586 when it was 595 on sale plus 139 shipping. (eventhough it will be discontinued. I am now considering the Ridgid jointer at HD for $429.
Does anyone here think prices will go down or sales will occur near Spring 09 when I plan to buy?
